Today’s fresh catch from around the web:
• Ruth Reichl’s salt-crusted chickens and roast pig – “the most magical night of my life.”
• Jonathan Gold, tastemaker: “If the dilution is correct and it has the proper chill, it almost doesn’t matter what’s in it.”
• Sugar Cane and Shortstops – the Times on Mark Kurlansky’s new book about that other American pastime.
• Martha Stewart, meet David Mas Masumoto. Mr. Mas Masumoto, meet Martha.
Join all of the above (sans Ms. Stewart) in Key West this January for The Hungry Muse: An Exploration of Food in Literature.
